FAQ | Frequently Asked Questions

We know that you have questions when it comes to choosing electrical services, diving into home projects, and every day electrical maintenance. As a trusted master electrician in central Maine, we recommend always hiring a professional for electrical diagnosis, repair, and installations, but have listed some of the more frequently asked questions below.
What can I do to lower my electric bill?

Your electric bill is based upon many factors, including how often you use electricity and how much of it you use. The simplest way to reduce your electric bill is to switch lighting, ceiling fans, and appliances off when you don’t need them. If you’re ready to take further steps toward greater energy efficiency, your options include replacing incandescent light bulbs with CFLs, upgrading your home’s lighting systems to use LEDs for even greater energy savings, and upgrading your current appliances and HVAC equipment to high-efficiency models.

What is a “short” or a “short circuit”?

A short circuit occurs when the wire carrying the electrical current comes into contact with the grounded conductor or equipment ground. If your home or business is located in Sabattus or Central Maine, give us a call to further diagnose your situation.

Can I change an existing switch to a dimmer switch?

Replacing any existing light switch with a dimmer switch is a simple task—as long as you’re a knowledgable, experienced electrician, like the team at A.L. Electric in Sabattus, ME. Installing a dimmer switch properly requires more than simply removing the old switch and replacing it with a new one. During this process, your electrician will also check the condition of the wiring, make sure the switch is properly grounded, and ensure the box is large enough to safely contain the new wiring associated with your dimmer switch. Need an electrician in Central Maine to change your light switch to a dimmer switch? Contact A.L. Electric, Inc.

Why can’t I just do my own electrical wiring?

Licensed electricians in Maine are required to know the most up-to-date electrical code. If you go to the expense of changing or adding electrical, you ought to do it to the current requirements. A trustworthy electrician will purchase the correct material, in the correct amounts, creating the least waste possible which can save you money in the end. Also, city and town inspectors will charge additional fees every time you fail inspection and they have to come back. Most importantly, there is always a risk of electrocution and arc burns when doing electrical repairs and installation—not to mention that incorrect electrical work has a nasty reputation for starting fires and causing total structure losses.

Do you offer home inspections?

Yes! For an hourly rate, A.L. Electric performs Central Maine electrical inspection for your home or business.  We offer a more thorough electrical inspection than the “home inspectors” because we are experts in that field and specialize in that area.  We are up to date on all codes, various city requirements, local utility company mandates, and we take annual continuing education classes to ensure you get a highly accurate report.  If we are at your house for another issue/project anyway, make sure to ask us to give you an inspection.

Is my electrical project too big or small?

At A.L. Electric, we provide services on the premise that we would help everyone. With over 25 years of experience, we have continued to help clients with all sorts of electrical problems/projects. We change light bulbs and smoke alarm batteries, hang Christmas lights, and reset breakers!  Additionally, we have resources to hire well-trained and licensed electricians in Central Maine to tackle large commercial projects or time crunch jobs.

How often should I get an electrical inspection?

As experienced electricians in Central Maine, A.L. Electric recommends getting an electrical inspection for your home about every 5 to 7 years to make sure your electrical panel and wiring is still supporting the load of your household and that no problems have occurred. Also, an electrical inspection should be done anytime you’re concerned about your wiring or another problem.

Why do my lights dim when I turn on an appliance?

If the lights dim when you turn on the microwave or other appliance, you need an electrical inspection as soon as possible. This is a sign that you’re demanding too much power than the electrical system can support. Contact your trusted electrician in Sabattus, Maine, A.L. Electric.

Can I hang a ceiling fan where a light is?

Yes, but first you must make sure the electrical box is properly braced and rated for the weight and torque of the ceiling fan you are installing. We strongly recommend hiring a highly skilled and licensed electrician in Central Maine to assist with all home or business electrical projects.

What areas of my house should be GFCI protected?

GFCI receptacles should be installed in all wet locations including unfinished basements, garages, anywhere outside the dwelling, within six feet of any sink, kitchens, bathrooms and powder rooms. A.L. Electric will work with you to walkthrough your home or business to determine which receptacles might need to be replaced with GFCI.

Do I need a surge protector?

Surges are created by lightning or from the local power station. Sometimes, a surge of electricity can flood out to the residents from the power station. A surge protector helps to protect your electrical devices from a power surge. Usually, surge protectors are used for electronic devices such as computers and flat-screen televisions. If you appreciate your electronic devices and want them to perform efficiently without having to worry about replacing them, you may want to consider protecting your devices with a surge protector.

What size electrical service system do I need for my property?

Figuring out the electrical loads of homes is essential. And to determine the size of electrical panel involves an audit of your appliances and a little bit of math as well. Your circuits should only be loaded up to 80% of the total circuit capabilities. So, if you have a 15-amp circuit, the safe operating amperage would be no greater than 12 amps. Give A.L. Electric a call and we’ll be happy to assist you in your energy load audit.


Alan came to us highly recommended by a family friend. My husband and I needed a bunch of electrical work done and Alan was extremely accommodating. We asked him a billion questions, and he took the time to explain things and was efficient, clean, and thorough. We now consider him to be “our electrician” and would recommend him to anyone!
